The batting tee is one of the oldest but most effective ways to practice your batting technique. In fact, practicing with a batting tee or playing t-ball is often how most young athletes develop a love for the sport of baseball. If you are ready to utilize this age-old practice accessory and improve your swing, here are some of the benefits that you can hope to achieve.
Different Pitching Alignments
One of the benefits of a batting tee is the ability to position the ball exactly where you want the pitch to be. For instance, if you have trouble hitting an inside pitch, you can position the batting tee exactly where you want it in the strike zone. Alternatively, if you want to be able to chase balls on the outside of the strike zone and condition yourself to achieve the perfect swing, you can move the tee to the outside of the strike zone.
One of the biggest benefits of practicing with a batting tee is the ability to swing for the fences and learn how to put the most power behind your swing. Because the ball isn't traveling towards you and is staying in a solitary position, you have the ability to put all of your power behind a ball and ensure you make contact. While over-swinging is possible, it's a great way to learn your limits and perfect your power swings.
Perfect Your Batting Technique
By practicing with a batting tee, you have the ability to practice your swing on a static ball without the need for a pitcher. This allows you to take multiple swings at the ball and improve your batting technique with each swing. Take the time to practice different batting drills to further improve your overall swing and develop as a ballplayer.
